MV Agusta has shown an updated F4 which the company says pushes the upper limits of performance and driving pleasure.
The engine, chassis, and swingarm are new, and weight is reduced by 10 kg. A new traction control system has been added with eight levels of adjustability, and aerodynamic efficiency has been improved with fairing reshaping and even mirrors that have small “aerodynamic appendices” to improve airflow.
Other features: dry weight 192.5 kg (424 lb), new 998 cc four-cylinder engine with a reduced-inertia crankshaft and lighter connecting rods, variable length intake system, TC Mk II traction control, slipper clutch, new electronic injection with 49 mm throttle bodies, new 4-1 exhaust with a valve, a lightened frame, a new single-sided swingarm, and lightened 320 mm brake discs.
Of course, it still looks good, and it’s still so expensive that the price cannot yet be announced … not that it matters much because we can’t get the MVs in Canada. However, you can customize your own at www.mvagusta.it and dream about the possibilities.
